TH IT supplied 64 bits high end 3D notebooks for PumaFlow training for the second time

21 Sep 08 Sunday

At 5.30 pm, Yih Farn was assigned to wait for two French gentlemen who were to install their PumaFlow software into our Dell Precision M4300 again. The software is supplied by famous French company BeicipFranlab.

This is the second time our notebook Dell Precision M4300 featuring a mobile workstation are rented again by the same customer to run their high end 3D graphic software training for one of the renown corporate giant in Malaysia.

Both Nicholas and David arrived sharp on time and all were expecting to have a long night that night. Base on our last experience, we couldn't get the NVidia Quadro Pro FX360 graphic card driver installed in Redhat Linux enterprise 4. This driver is so important to make sure the 3D graphic runs smoothly. During our last installation, it was only successfully installed with Redhat Linux Enterprise 5 (64 bits)

Problem encountered

Not for long, David said he encountered a problem to run one of the very important program, the SIMView. In previous class, the other trainer took about 3 hours to download extra necessary drivers for their program to run smoothly. While we established this fact that RE5 can be used without any problem, both Nicholas and David were having an tense up moment to solve their problem.

Upon their request, Yih Farn tried to run the RE4 installation again. Obviously we are more experience now and coupled with the fact that both Nicholas and David are expert in their program, under their guidelines, we quickly discover new findings on RE4.

Graphic Card driver installation works on RE4

To our surprise, we quickly found out that the graphic card driver can be installed easily and stably on RE4! It seems that we need to select all the options during installation of RE4 to achieve this.

Everyone was so happy because after we have discovered this, it means we can go back home early and sleep early.

Training is done at JW Mariott Hotel, Jln Bukit bintang.

TH IT's support

After 1 unit of the notebook was completely set up by David, we continue to clone the other units with this unit's image. The data was so hugh that each image cloning process lasted about 45 minutes per session! In order to run faster, we eventually changed to gigabits switch. Nonetheless we finished at about 00.30 am that night!

Thanks to the 'Buka Puasa' (break fast dinner) dinner at Mariott Hotel, that it is advantages for both Nicholas and David are coming over to our office to do the installation.

7.30am set up at Mariott Hotel

To make sure every units will be installed and set up probably, so Nicholas requested us to set up at Mariott at 7.30 am. By 7.00 am, Yih Farn was already there and every unit was set up and installed properly without any problem! I am very glad to have the opportunity to work with Yih Farn because he can always made things done properly.
